Description

From the Melling Bridge to the Ava Rail Bridge there are two alternative routes: the upper track is on the flood stop bank and has a grass/asphalt surface; the lower track is closer to the river and has a grass/gravel surface.

After ducking under the Ava Rail Bridge, cross the cricket ground (or go round if in use) to the flood stop bank which then continues through the golf course.

Rather than crossing Waione Street, there is a tunnel under the Hutt Estuary Bridge. This leads to a tight and twisty little board walk around the estuary then up to the the footpath on the southern side of Waione Street.
